Danze three handle - very cheap quality plastic parts wear out in mere days and have been replaced - and replaced again. Never seen such poor quality design. Is there a better replacement part? Or do I need to replace with another brand?

I'm not familiar with a NSF 61/9, but I've used several other models. I believe these are all ceramic disc valve. They almost never wear out. If you remove the handle and the trim cap or bonnet, there should be a nut or adjusting ring you can tighten. Don't over do it. The handle give you quite a bit more leverage than the small tap when it is removed. Here is Danze web site and you can look up your exact model number and see a exploded parts list: www.danze.com
I had the same problem and just now fixed it. Remove the faucet head - the tub filler - and pull out the diverter tube insert. It's the valve at the bottom that's sticking - probably because of calcium or mineral deposits. I washed mine with white vinegar and pushed a wooden spoon handle down the tub to unstick the valve, scrubbed it with vinegar and a toothbrush and re-installed. Works perfectly now.
Sounds like you have hard water. You need to change the inside of the facet. before doing anything make sure you CAN get the parts for you facet. Danze are not very expencive you might just get a new facet. If this is a hard water problem you might want to buy a moen facet with a life time warrinty. More money but free replacement parts.
